Very interesting. She is a very pretty girl, and obviously well loved too.

Our rescue just took in a tripod as well. It is her back paw that is missing, so we are getting her a prostethic paw. It must be very had to potty for a female especially missing a rear paw.

Lucy seems to get along quite well. I wonder what she would make of a prostetic leg???

The good thing is she's loved and cared for and is getting along. That's wonderful.

Thank you Maddoxie for your story on another tripod. I hope the prostetic leg works out for her. I don't know what Lucy's mom would think of a prostetic leg. I think if it was me, and Lucy was happy and in no pain and doing fine I would leave as is. But it is SO GREAT there are so many options for our animals these days.

I agree, Morgan, she is so well loved and that is truly what matters. She is such a sweet, pretty little dog, isn't she?
